Caviar-Black Jacket from Kashmir with Ari Hand-Embroidered Paiselys in Red Colored Thread
An exquisite example of Kashmiri workmanship, this fashionable jacket has been handpicked from the recesses of the valley for its beauty. The sheer intricacy of the crewel-work, called ari in the local language, in each paisley and petal on the edges and the body of this jacket makes this an irresistible pick. Ari is actually the name given to the crochet at the end of the superfine needles that are used by Kashmiri artisans to put these flawless motifs on fabric. Its glamour is undeniable - from the unusual black of the foundation wool to the luxuriance of the regal red paisleys.

Mother Yashoda Adorns Her Baby Gopala
The baala Gopala was a wise, thoughtful child. The word ‘baala’ is Sanskrt for child and the name Gopala references the childhood of Lord Krishna. Even as He stands naked on a soft bed of blue velvet as His mother the lovely Yashoda toys with Him, He looks ahead of Him with great solemnity of composure. His diminutive, adorably chubby frame is supported by Yashoda, who in turn gazes at Him with all the fervour of maternal compassion.In a private chamber within their home in Vrindavan, where there is only a tiny window to let in a modest quantum of light. Built into the grey mud walls of the background is a column of shelves from floor to ceiling, a common feature in the rural homes of the subcontinent. The same are lined with the family’s choicest chests and utensils. The mother and child are in the foreground: out of an old velvet-lined sandook (chest) she pulls out the finest jewels in her possession and bedecks her little baby with them.Note the sharp contrast between the vivid colours of the foreground and the matte grey background. Fresh jasmines hold the mother’s bun in place; gold and pearls adorn her neck and ears and nose. A pale purple-coloured saree and glimmering gold bangles. There is the signature peacock plume in Lord Gopala’s black hair and streams of pearls in His hair and around His neck. With His delicate infantine hands He clutches at a necklace of gold and rubies.
